This one isn't really a rant. I'm not talking about anything highly intellectual. But I just can't help but want to share. I'm in love with a great person. It's been such a long time since I've been able to do anything of this sort, and be this vulnerable. Even months ago I was talking with a friend, wondering how I could risk it all again for anyone, and doubting that I'd be able to. But now we both know... we can, and I am. I can feel the wind blowing past my heart... it's not safe, protected, hidden from the elements. It's out there, exposed, and it's the greatest thing.

Nobody said it would be easy. I'm more convinced of that, even though I know comparatively it's been easy sailing and the hardest is probably ahead. But it's worth it.
